The Bachelor of Arts in Humanities is designed for students wishing to gain a broad background in the various disciplines included in the liberal arts, such as literature, the arts, history, political studies, philosophy and interdisciplinary studies. The study of humanities encourages a student to be intellectually courageous, to work both cooperatively and independently, to form new connections and to master analysis, interpretation, effective communication and imagination skills that are becoming increasingly crucial for success in any endeavor.
